I’m very embarrassed to say “I’m creative” but I must believe it and I can see it on my personality test. I don’t have an independent mind, because I always listen to the ideas of others, but I can be proud of myself that I always try to find out the solutions, think different way.
So what is the creativity?
You absolutely have a lot of questions about the creativity.
- How can be more creative?
